Our upcoming coast-to-coast exhibit of immigrant janitors’ stories, the Proyecto Carrito Caravan, will be featured in ArtWeek Boston, a 10-day, citywide creative festival, on Thursday, October 6, as part of Arts 4 Social and Civic Engagement.
This event, sponsored by MassPartners of the Americas, celebrates using “the arts as a vehicle for understanding, engaging and influencing the future of the Americas”—closely aligned with how our own Proyecto Carrito Caravan uses a vehicle literally wrapped in stories.
Right now, it’s too easy to talk about immigration, not immigrants. With the Caravan, we want to help people from diverse backgrounds recognize how much they have in common. Arts 4 Social and Civic Engagement seeks to “host conversations about art and social issues,” and we are honored and excited to be part of those discussions.
Our presentation at Arts 4 Social and Civic Engagement will be on Thursday, October 6, from 9 am to noon. It will be at the Arsenal Project Innovation Space, 485 Arsenal Street, Watertown, MA 02472.
